Bradley County Assessor Stanley Thompson told the Bradley County Commission on Monday night that he hopes to work out software problems soon so that tax bills can be mailed out.
He said he thought the issues were ironed out earlier, but there were still some problems encountered when it was sent off to the state.
He noted that tax bills have already gone out for the city of Charleston residents, but not the rest of the county.
Trustee Mike Smith said once he gets the notices from the assessor he should be able to issue the tax bills about a week later.
He told Commissioners, "Stanley's wrestling a tiger. It is sure not from lack of effort."
Trustee Smith said it looked like everything was fine earlier in the day, then new issues arose around 4:15 p.m.
Bradley residents have until Feb. 28 to pay their taxes once the bills are sent out.
Commissioner Bill Winters said talks are ongoing concerning the animal control issue.
He said the city of Cleveland had sent a budget proposal, and two private groups interested in starting up a county facility have been asked to submit additional information.
